't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the last time and the time before that scott hit it right between the eyes. >> no, i know scott quite w
are their people. >> that's right. one of the other arguments the obama campaign makes these national polls. gallup poll has shown consistently a seven-point lead for romney. simply missing these obama voters who will get out again. >> we have two polling races. we have rasmussen and gallup in one corner. according to the gallup and rasmussen we're headed for a landslide for romney. 11-point victory, he got seven, obama. they lost last time by huge amounts. i don't know what's going on out there. george, none of us does, i think, i think it's going to be extremely close. i think, like nicolle, it's going to be about ohio, the auto bailout. of all the policies and the arguments -- >> or miscounting latino voters. or people who don't respond to hard-line phone calls. or just the science of polling. >> or the number of times i have refused to pick up my phone when i can see it's research firm. but, nonetheless, i think a nightmare frankly, maybe we can all agree on this, is that there are some electoral college/popular vote difference. >> one scenario is that it just doesn't come down to one state, li
faith that the people are going to do the right thing, that they are going to vote for president obama. they are going to continue to give him four more years and he will continue to heal our nation and he's been a great leader for all of us. >> in 2008 when you extended early voting, governor, you said, i have a responsibility to the voters of our state to ensure that the maximum number of citizens can participate in the electoral process and every citizen can exercise the right to vote. that's what you said when you signed that emergency act. governor, you did it in 2008. governor scott will not do it today. that's why many of us are wondering, is this voter suppression, partisan politics? >> i think it is voter suppression. i think it's ridiculous and unfortunate. my heart bleeds for the people of florida. they ought to have the opportunity to exercise this cherished right to vote. we've got to remember, a lot of people fought very hard for people to have that right. some died for it. we ought to respect that. >> i know you've got to go and introduce the president. thank you for tal
supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation.

romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
about the future, and i feel like barack obama is right or is mitt romney right we are not moving forward, we're moving in the wrong direction? neil: the wind has kind of been that the administration's economic back, do you buy that? >> yeah, i do. if he gets a lousy number that i think his goose is cooked. if he gets 8% or above, what a second, we are not moving forward. neil: what do you think about that? >> 8% or higher, yes. i think what we will probably see is an average job number based on the survey we saw today so it is not going to matter that much. americans have made up their minds. we suffered high unemployment for long time, but now they've made a choice will they get too much for four more years or will we make a change. neil: thank you all so much. the last big economic data before the election next week. and listen in developments like the blogs and all, it is all the talk what has happened on the administration knew about benghazi and when it knew it extended to report on "abc news," "cbs news," cnn, the daily beast, not as conservati conservative. the mainstream
what's right for you at constantcontact.com/try. >>> in tonight's rewrite, more proof that the obama campaign is running a turnout election. the obama campaign in the closing weeks does not need to persuade voters to switch their support from mitt romney to barack obama. they simply need to persuade the supporters who support president obama to actually go out and vote for him. especially younger voters. the obama campaign has now delivered the hippest ad in the history of presidential campaigning, starring possibly the most ultra cool person in the history of television. >> your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. it should be with a guy with beautiful -- someone who really cares about and understands women. a guy who cares whether you get health insurance, you want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of iraq. or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful complicated weddings. it's a fun game to say who are you voting for and you say i don't want to tell you. think about how you want to spend those four years. in college
that obama was right to say how people cling to to their guns and religion. will that resonate in 2012? guest: that as a comment that has certainly stuck with a lot of pennsylvanian, particularly in the southwestern part, the more conservative democratic areas. the president made that statement in a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that primary in 2008. we six week period where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwestern part of the state, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro-gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania changing the gun laws here. i do not see any opportunity -- there is doubt we'll see change in the foreseeable future. i do not know that that is a decisive comment, but it lingers on as a problem for the president. in parts of the state. caller: frank is trying s -- republican line.
was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political pandering because these
on the track that we are on. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now, more than 1,000 dominion crews are on their way to new jersey. they are going help restore power to the hundreds of thousands of people still in the dark after sandy. the workers know they have a tough task ahead of them. their mission is rewarding. >> most of the customer base is extremely grateful. we do der i've a lot out of that. it's fantastic. hopefully, we'll run into the same thing up there. i'm sure we will. we are there to help. >> it isn't clear how long the crews will be gone. they will be working gruelling hours while they are away. they will work shifts of at least 12 hours. >> we are getting a look at the damage from sandy. take a look at these before and after satellite photos in new jersey. the storm is believed to have caused $50 billion in damages. so far, it's claimed 92 live, 11 in virginia. many businesses are without power, it's down from a peak of 8.5 million. getting around new york is just about impossible. many in new york and new jersey trying to drive the
. right now, the obama mask is leading romney 60% to 40%, but the latest rasmussen poll showing obama trailing romney while the new york sometimes shows just the opposite. in other words, we'll find out on election day. >>> because halloween could be rainy, some folks are celebrating early. we have a couple of ideas. the eke land zoo is holding another boo at the zoo tomorrow with a costume parade, face painting, candy, and pumpkins and goodies for the animals as well. the san francisco zoo is holding a similar event. and then in the south bay, you can always check out a haunted trail and pumpkin patch. the moreland woods in san jose, there will be food trucks, baked goods, games. admission is free there. >>> and right now one more check of what we're doing to expect for the weekend and halloween. >> i'm going have to give out extra candy this year. >> absolutely. >> the seven-day forecast is showing no problem for halloween events for the weekend into early next week. the weather is going to stay dry. fairly warm. but it does look like starring off wednesday morning, hall screen morn
it will be sunny, seeing that blanket of fog. 60s and 70s. >>> 7:15. new this morning, president obama right now is heading back to washington, d.c. he canceled a florida campaign appearance this morning because of the approaching hurricane sannie. >> scott macfarland is out on the streets of washington, d.c. to show us -- to show us how the storm is affecting the federal government and president obama's schedule. >> and dave, this seping news, the white house says the president has canceled tomorrow's appearance in green bay, wisconsin to stay here in d.c. and monitor this storm, d.c., the nation's capital, is a ghost town. let's take a look at the president hopping on a plane. he knows what it sit -- what is sitting -- what is hitting here. the rains already coming down heavy. they will get heavier as the afternoon moves along. the administrator of fema talking about how they are preparing this morning. >> pennsylvania, flooding and we've been moving stuff into position. because power outages are likely to top the million- dollar mark. the u.s. -- is announcing closures. >>> the supreme court
everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and
changed the u.s. approach? >> right, well, obama had said repeatedly that america is a pacific nation. and he's been refocusing foreign policy toward asia. commanders at the pentagon really poured resources towards this region. and obama tried to strengthen economic ties, for example, congress passed a free trade fact with south korea. but mitt romney and others say obama still hasn't done enough on issues such as the currency disparity with china. republicans say his approach to nuclear weapons is misguided. the professor says somewhere along the way, obama got sidetracked. >> like the working without nuclear weapons, he had an idea and this global vision, but middle east was so volatile and promising at the same time. during his administration. and naturally i think he was sort of shifted to that region instead of asia. >> but most americans care most about what happens at home. millions of them are still without work. we'll get the latest numbers on friday and no doubt voters will look to that as a cue to how obama has done. >>> opposition commanders in syria feared government forc
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
's not going to be activist on that issue. you're right about the issue of obama care for a lot of women. birth control is an economic issue. and that's one of the things democrats have brought out in the last couple of weeks. >> belva: john, we have to ask you on issues question, with all of the money being spent for all of these seats, is there any issue you just said it was mostly about money, i guess. >> i think it's a reflection of the national campaigns. i think we're having a national discussion about health care, we're having a national dits cushion about budget priorities. you have a congress and a president, whoever that president is, facing this fiscal cliff, as they are talking about in washington. so, you are hearing that a lot on the congressional level. i want to roll back, if i can, to the state ballot measures, because i do think that the most fascinating dynamic, to me, out of this ballot measure campaign has been jerry brown's continual lobbying about not so much about what's great about prop 30, but what's bad if it fails. we've seen in polling and you talk to people that th

area. reproductive rights activists. look, women have been for obama, he's enjoyed this gender gap for a long time. and in the last couple of weeks, romney has managed to shave that down, very concerning to the grou and ve rights they've really been working this vote all over the crontry and the fact is that they tracked what they say is about 5 million women who they call obama defectors who may go to the other side, go to mitt romney and that could be a key margin in some of these swing states. >> he's got ads out there that suggest he's not going to be activist on that issue. you're right about the issue of obama care for a lot of women. birth fontrol is an economic s issue. and that's one of the things democrats have brought out in the last couple of weeks. have to ask n, we you on issues question, with ala of the money being spent for all of these seats, is there any issue you a just said it was mostly about money, i guess. >> i think it's a reflection of the national campaigns. i think we're having a national discussion about health care, we're having a national dits cushion
voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decided edge among moderates. fascinating new division in the electorate that we're seeing playing out. >> stay here. we'll talk more about this. brianna keeler is in milwaukee. the president will be there later today. three days out. this is the final chance for the president to make his case to voters. what's the final message going to be? >> reporter: he's countering, ali, mitt romney's message where he is talking about being the candidate of real change. we've been hearing president obama say that's not true. president obama saying that he is the candidate of change, admitting that the change has been slow going as far as improvement to the economy. but still urging voters to have patience with him. remember, yesterday with those jobs numbers out, he pointed to private sector gains, trying to show that things are heading in the right direction. the other thing, he's trying to say to voters you know me. you may not agree with me all of the time. but you know i am a man of

are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio and that will result according to a study by the national federation of independent businesses with a 700,000 job loss which we cannot afford. so, governor romney instead has proposed pro-growth policies including a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation, but makes the tax code far more efficient, simplifies it and, that will result in 7 million new jobs, over the next ten years. that is the choice people have and in ohio, you know, they are ch
saw when he got out to tour the damaged area. he will do the same with president obama. >>> all right, thank you craig. from new jersey we go to our weather center our chief meteorologist. what's the situation now with that massive storm. >> the storm is still massive. the worse is over. that tial surge, the big surf of last night that's when the real problems happen. we're going to see continued sunshine. over the next 24 hours it makes it way into eastern new york. it is massive, it extends from chicago south, northern atlanta, norfolk and maine. look how big that thing is. continued problems especially if you're trying to fly in and out of any of the major hubs out of the united states in the next few hours and into the united states. we'll see you back here in a little bit. >>> despite the extensive damage from sandy the new york stock exchange is set to reopen tomorrow. right now workers are running through an extensive testing of the stock exchange systems in the home that they can flush out any problems. the stock exchange was closed yesterday and today due to that storm. the l
effect i think is powerful. >> is thereto obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle? >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist if you will and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i get the sense that the love of romney by the rye and other political players is based on sand in this case. and guys like the governor of new jersey and all the voices out there that haven't come to romney's help this week, they don't love him enough to say, wait a minute, forget this storm, this guy i
right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very digital differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody thinks they're going to be close. these are the states everybody is going to be watching on tuesday night. each of these states, as you know, has a top elections official. and e
just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. >> the reason colin powell's was the most eagerly anticipated endorsement of this election is because his endorsement of barack obama in 2008 was seen as being a consequential thing in terms of the obama lead over mccain in '08 and how the election was going to turn out. also more importantly, colin powell is probably the single republican in the country who has the most gravitas and credibility with crossover voters, independent voters and with generally speaking nonideological people who admire his leadership and his judgment. eve
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
